The acoustic guitar adds a percussive flavor to the verse section with some aggressive strumming of the Em, B chord progression. The approach here is to lay into some aggressive but consistent 8th note strumming at a medium dynamic. Work on locking in tight with the rhythm section, which is no small task at this quick tempo.

In the outro, you'll transition into strumming with a galloping feel, which adds tension and a more exotic flavor to the song.
